Win a set of all the brilliant winners of the 2012 Fiction Uncovered prize
Sunday 27 May 2012
The Fiction Uncovered prize is an unusual one, in that it selects eight titles instead of one winner each year. Its remit is quite simple: to “uncover and celebrate our best British writers”.
Fiction Uncovered somewhat boldly thinks of itself as the Mercury Prize for books, because it celebrates writers whom keen readers (and literary editors) might know about, and introduces some whom we probably don’t. First time novelists with huge publicity budgets need not apply, nor world famous big prize-winners whose latest novels come with serialisation deals and interviews in the broadsheets.
There are eight titles selected for Fiction Uncovered 2012:
- Two Cows and a Vanful of Smoke by Peter Benson, Alma Books
- The Light of Amsterdam by David Park, Bloomsbury
- This is Life by Dan Rhodes, Canongate
- Hit and Run by Doug Johnstone, Faber and Faber
- My Former Heart by Cressida Connolly, Fourth Estate
- When Nights Were Cold by Susanna Jones, Mantle
- Lucky Bunny by Jill Dawson, Sceptre
- Crushed Mexican Spiders by Tibor Fischer, Unbound (London)
The Independent has a complete set of all eight winners to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, simply answer the question below:
